    Hi folks,

    Thanks for your passion around this. We’ve been discussing this item off and on for some time now and we’d love to get your input.

    The reason we’ve resisted this is because the R runtime & various packages (and updating their versions) aren’t straightforward for other users to install. This limits sharing such queries across a workgroup.

    What do you think?

    For others reading this that’d like us to prioritize this work, please be sure to add your vote since we’re prioritizing our backlog based on these.

    thanks

    Hi Joana & others,

    Thanks for logging this suggestion. Yes, being able to protect your queries would be quite useful indeed for delivering solutions. We’ll prioritize this based on the interest, so if you’re reading this and haven’t voted as yet, please do so.

    thanks

    Thanks for the suggestion Jessica. We’ve got a few other suggestions on the site that are similar with scientific notation, etc. We’ll take a look at this area, and pay special attention to any cases that get a lot of votes. So please keep the votes coming to help us do a good job at prioritizing asks like this!

    Cheers,

    Great suggestion – thanks again for taking the time to put it on this site and for the thoughtful followup comments. This is pretty related to some other work we’ve got going and already has a fair number of votes, so we’ll work on getting plans in place now and hope to get started on this soon.

    Thanks,
    John [MS XL]

    Huge progress update toward historical data! We have released our preview of the StockHistory function! https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/stockhistory-function-1ac8b5b3-5f62-4d94-8ab8-7504ec7239a8

    However, this is only available to our Beta Channel at the moment, so when it is rolled out to General Availability, I will be sure to update the status to completed.

    If you are able to use the feature in preview and have feedback, please send-a-frown for us to review.

    Wow.

    Thank you to all those participated in our survey. What an amazing number of responses, many of them with very deep content. We’re processing the over ten thousand responses(!), and already appreciate the time so many of you took to answer with passion and experience.

    Please know this survey is used to help influence various topics – both on Python as well as other related topics that the comments started to bleed into. Given the passion, I want to be clear this remains an area of exploration for us, without any specific timeline.

    We’ll provide updates as we progress on this feature request.

    Thanks!

    It should be in both Native Excel and M.

    Dynamic Arrays will likely increase the need and power of a RegEx function.

    I completely agree. I've made R calls to do this, but that's not always possible while it is always painful. I've also built numerous M functions to strip out characters because there is no RegEx in M.

    I've built this function, but would love to have it native. I agree with Jon - the value increases with Dynamic Arrays. I would do the function a little differently that proposed above. It could operate more like the VBA function. SPLIT(Text, Delimiter, [Field]). The optional Field would allow the function to return a single, non-array result.

    Example: SPLIT("EUMA - Europe - Switzerland - Geneva - Cointrin", " - ", 3) returns the greatest country in the world.
